1 – Crown – Jay Z – Years later, and I am beginning to think maybe I am underestimated Holy Grail. The problem with the album is it came out around the time of Yeezus and felt a little whatever in its shadow, but this song, with Travis Scott’s excellent hook, is actually pretty darn out there – B+

2 – Heaven Is A Place On Earth – Belinda Carlisle – Sounds like a hair metal song rewritten for the popcharts – B

3 – It’s A Wonderful Lie – Mary Lou Lord – Terrific jingle jangle take on Westerberg’s deep album track – A

4 – It’s A Wonderful Lie – Paul Westerberg – His take captures the melody better, Mary Lou flattens it a little. Some self portrait  – A

5  – Private Eyes – Hall And Oates – Convincing blue eyed soul meets disco – A

6 – I Can’t Go For That ( No Can Do) – Hall And Oates – Two songs, the bridge and the chorus, fighting it out – A

7 – Don’t Tell Me What To DO – Air Traffic Controller – Gorgeous folker – A-

8 – Asheville Skies – Milk carton Kids – Singlehandedly makes Americana more than smething to laugh at – A

9 – Power – Kanye West – All that power? Austin Powers? He was drinking now he’s driving – A+

10 – Touch The Sky – Kanye West – With Lupe Fiasco and a pretty good sample off “Move On Up” – A-
